According to a report from Mile Square View, the Hoboken Housing Authority Board of Commissioners have scheduled a Special Board Meeting to terminate the contract of Executive Director Carmelo Garcia.
The report, based off a public notice from the Hoboken City Clerk’s Office, includes resolutions “terminating the contract of Executive Director Carmelo Garcia” and “appointing acting Executive Director.”
The special meeting would be the second of its kind in the past month for the Hoboken Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. On July 2nd, 2014, the board tabled a resolution to expand the scope of a special counsel in a similar meeting.
If the resolution to terminate Garcia’s contract does get voted on, it is likely to pass on the support of commissioners aligned with Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who make up a majority of the board.
Garcia, who also serves as an Assemblyman representing Hoboken, Jersey City, and Union City, earned a salary of $163,649 as executive director in 2013, according to public records.
Garcia did not immediately return calls for comment from Hudson County View and Chairwoman Dana Wefer declined to comment on this story.
The meeting will be held on Monday, August 4th, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 94 Washington Street, Hoboken, New Jersey.
